Landlord of pub on Carlisle Road

Recommended Posts

This is a photo taken in the sixties. I think it shows the landlord and his wife with a few other people outside a pub, probably the Wellington, on Carlisle Road.

That's not the Wellington I remember. Perhaps I have the wrong name. It was on Carlisle Road roughly opposite the bottom of Moss Street before they were all knocked down. My father was a regular there and he took the photograph.

It certainly was The Wellington. All of us who worked at English Steel Corp on Brightside Lane in the 1960's used it a lot. In the late 50's and early 60's the melting shop men from the Open Hearth furnaces ( which closed about 1963 I think) used to get their beer from there. They got it in large 5 gallon containers and it was used to replenish the liquid they lost from the heat- before salt tablets were used !!

I worked with an old melter about 1965 and he thought nothing of drinking in excess of 20 pints in a day !!

The photo is the Wellington at the corner of Brightside Lane & Hawke Street (the one the Germans used to navigate their bombing runs during the war).
